Signage in 3D: adding an impactful dimension to your office branding

What better way to have your office branding stand out than by taking advantage of the impactful effect of 3D signage. And such was the thinking of Sydney-based cruise holiday specialists, Ecruising Travel, when they contacted us to complete this interesting project.

Our brief was to create a large 3D sign, which to achieve, we would need to incorporate three different signage elements.

3D-sign-black-acrylic-suite-number-sydney

We used 6 mm acrylic – black for the suite number, and white with a coloured face for the rest of the signage – which included varying sizes of 3D lettering and numbers.

In completing this project, acrylic was our material of choice – which is most widely used in 3D signs – but 3D signage can also be fabricated from other materials, such as foam plastic, or aluminum composite panel for achieving a gleaming metallic finish.

The installation of 3D signage can be resolved by either screwing or adhering each element to the desired surface. And you can create a striking visual effect, by varying the gauge of your elements, creating a visual staircase of ascending height with your components.

Perhaps not utilised as often as it could be, 3D signs offer an approach to customised office branding that maximises impact. Please contact Sydney Signs Portal today to learn how your business could benefit from it.

 

Acrylic Signage: an intersection of art and function

When one of Australia’s largest consumer product companies reached out to us to complete a large-scale project – even we didn’t fully anticipate the epic magnitude of what we were taking on.

The brief was for wall graphics and art at their new office in Macquarie Park, Sydney. This would end up including the installation of several large wall murals, as well as the installation of an incredible 26 acrylic prints – with the largest panel measuring 1500mm W x 1000mm H.

With the company specialising in food, all of the artworks were food-themed. And this is where the quality of an Acrylic Print Sign shone through. Acrylic lends itself perfectly to artwork because it is 100% optically clear – unlike glass, whose production method ensures it will always have slight colouration.

Each acrylic piece adorns the wall like a work of art, transforming the space into what feels more like a gallery than a new office.

Making a Statement with Quality Shopfront Signage

With five years experience, specialising in quality shopfront signage in Sydney, we have the track record to demonstrate that we can be relied on to accommodate your need for a wide variety of shopfront signage needs.

Whether you require: shop window signs; replacement of light box acrylic panels; awning signage; or aluminium composite signs for external walls – our professional team has your shopfront signage needs covered.

So when the guys at Good Games – an international group of gaming environments – reached out to us with three consecutive signage projects in two different locations – we brought our A game, with production and installation of window graphics and shop signs.

And how often are you blessed with being located near a prestigious signage company? Well such is the good fortune of Bean Brewers, our friendly neighbours in Chippendale, Sydney. It was a short distance to travel when we installed these classic looking window decals for them.

In sharing these stories with you, we hope to assist you through the minefield of options you have when it comes to selecting a signage company. And we are confident that year after year we have delivered and completed work to a consistent high-quality and reliability to give you the peace of mind of making Sydney Signs Portal your first port of call for signage needs in Sydney.

True Vision with One-Way Vision, Perforated Window Graphics

It is such a wonderful advantage to be able to print window graphics onto see-through perforated film – displaying branding or graphics, providing privacy, while at the same time allowing an interior view on the outside world. And, yet, it remains a medium that is incredibly underutilised in the Sydney signage scene.

So, in an attempt to do justice to one way vision film’s versatility, we would like to share with you a recent example of how to take advantage of it with truly impressive results.

Once again, we were fortunate to be working with a returning client. The image used was a photo taken using an iPhone of a guitar from Australia’s internationally successful band, Peking Duck.

The installation spanned 15m, across 6 windows on the Plus U building in the Sydney CBD. The use of black and white window graphics is always striking, but is particularly effective when applied to see-through perforated film.

The completed installation is one of the more awe-inspiring examples of one-way vision window graphics you will find in Sydney. We can only hope that it inspires others to take advantage of its potential, and, in the process, elevate the Sydney signage landscape.

Think Big or go Home: The Spectacular Art of Window Decals

One of the benefits of earning the trust of a client through producing consistently high quality results across numerous projects, is having the opportunity to work on the type of bold projects that we relish being contacted for.

And such was the case when Think Brick reached out to us for our 4th project with them, having previously worked on: a complicated printed frosting and printed whiteboard; a company event at the Hyatt hotel on Sydney harbour; an expanse of motivational wall decals, between windows that run the length of the office. But this 4th project would see us taking on a truly spectacular design that would transform their North Sydney workspace.

office-window-signage-sydney

The intricate mosaic style office window decals required exhaustive planning throughout the design process. As the intent was to create a double-sided office interior, we needed to install a block-out film to ensure the graphics on the underside of the glass could not be seen. This allowed us to seamlessly feature window graphics and signage on either side of the glass.

window-graphics-and-signage-sydney

The scale of this project becomes all the more apparent given that each small triangle is an individual window sticker, composed of a combination of computer cut window decals and digital print graphics to achieve the desired effect.

window-decal-sign-sydney

The meticulous production involved three people over three days, painstakingly aligning each individual triangle. Remarkably, our dedicated team at Sydney Signs Portal, still managed to complete the entire production and installation within a week.

We consider it a privilege to push the boundaries when it comes to window decals and office signs in Sydney. We hope you are suitably inspired to breathe life into your workspace in a similarly spectacular fashion. We await your contact today.

Maximising workspace functionality with custom whiteboards

Gone are the days of an office whiteboard being a cumbersome, intrusive, fixed-size addition to your office. An evolution has taken place, where custom sizing, functionality and seamless inclusion are all now possible.

We love nothing more than seeing a workspace transformed in a way that takes advantage of a product’s potential. And such was the case when engineering and construction powerhouse, Bechtel, reached out to us to realise their vision of a workspace whiteboard Utopia.

Within open office spaces, meeting rooms, enclosed offices, boardrooms and storerooms – whiteboard that extended from knee height to well above head height, spanning 50 metres in length was installed. The largest single whiteboard was 7 metres in length, installed in an open office area.

To complete the aesthetic, each whiteboard will eventually be framed with aluminium strip holder.

We also installed window frosting, adding frosting strips to some of the exposed glass.

This project represents and embodies why we strive so hard to innovate within the signage industry. You will see no better example of the functionality of a workspace being maximised with custom whiteboard inclusions -at least, not until we next outdo ourselves.

And perhaps that will be with your project?

Our dedicated team at Sydney Signs Portal awaits your contact.

But your choices with acrylic signs do no end there. Acrylic comes in a range of appealing tones: clear, white, black or frosted.

And what these varied options with acrylic signage afford to you is a unique ability to truly capture the essence of your business and how it is perceived.

Throw in a price point that compares favourably with regular decal signage – along with the fact the acrylic signs can travel with you should your business relocate – and it beckons the question: what more convincing do you need?

Supporting Community with Signage for The Sydney Vegan Market

Here at Sydney Signs Portal, we pay more than lip service to the ethical values we aim to run our business by. This means occasionally declining work – usually on the grounds that we are not comfortable with supporting businesses involving animal exploitation.

So you can imagine the excitement we felt when approached by Vegan NSW to assist with the signage needed for their monthly Sydney Vegan Market.

A range of custom made signs, logos, banners, digital prints and more were required for this major event. Because we were working for a charitable organisation, and a lifestyle our entire team is passionate about, we were happy to donate time and resources, ensuring costs were kept to a minimum – not a simple task when small business like ours takes on such a large-scale project.

The market is held on the 3rd Sunday of every month at the grounds of The Sydney Portugal Community Club in Marrickville. The signage we created for it serves functionally, while you’re surrounded by great food and so much more at this truly spectacular community event.

Window Frosting: The Geometry of Style

window-frosting-meetingroom-design-sydney

One of the great privileges we have here at Sydney Signs Portal is participating in the growth and development of emerging interior design trends in contemporary offices.

office-window-frosting-sydney

One such office interior design trend is the use of geometric patterns for window frosting. Among which, the hexagon pattern is proving to be a particularly special approach as a window frosting solution.

window-frosting-boardroom-sydney

Complimenting a variety of interior designs, hexagonal window frosting is both stylish and functional. Its geometry offers a wonderful business-like aesthetic, while providing the office privacy you require.

window-frosting-cut-and-print-sydney

One of the great features of hexagonal window frosting is that it offers a wide range of variations. We can print your company colours on all of the hexagons – or just a selection – creating a striking effect of scattered elements. We also have the option of producing hexagons that are larger or smaller – depending on your preference – as well as choosing to fill or leave them empty. Working together, we are only limited by our collective imagination.

window-frosting-honycomb-sydney

The experience our team at Sydney Signs Portal has with designing and installing window frosting over the years, presents a wonderful opportunity for your business to benefit greatly without the need for the type of costly investment normally associated with the interior design of your office.
